Contemporary wood-turned boxes inspired by nature and made from sustainable materials. Designs range from pure and simple to more ornamented styles with carving and inlaid details. Temptingly tactile, each box reveals the unique natural beauty of the wood and is a little work of art to treasure. Workshop viewings by appointment.

I make jewellery out of sea smoothed glass, ceramic and shells. These are combined with silver wire and semi-precious stone beads to make all sorts of jewellery inspired by the sea and coastline. Jewellery can be obtained directly from me or found at Lochside Crafts or Dunvegan Post Office.

Edinbane Pottery & Gallery
We draw inspiration from the Isle of Skye and the surrounding islands.

I am inspired by the common plants which grow around me and, using traditional skills, make work which brings them into a present day conversation; helping us to revalue both these skills and to see the plants themselves in a new way. I also make books to document specific projects.
